This measure sought to reduce the income tax credit by a rate of 25 percent. The reduction of the tax credit would have given the city an additional amount of near $730,000 a year. The continued loss of state funding and reduction of taxes had led the council to seek alternative ways for additional revenues to ensure the budget would not have deficits and city services and programs could continue.[2]
